G7 vows to continue supporting Ukraine's sovereignty - communique


The G7 countries have promised to continue supporting the sovereignty and territorial integrity of Ukraine.

This is stated in a joint communique issued at the end of the G7 summit in Canada.

"We reiterate our condemnation of the illegal annexation of Crimea and reaffirm our enduring support for Ukrainian sovereignty, independence and territorial integrity within its internationally-recognized borders," reads the document.

The G7 stressed that the continuation of sanctions against Russia "is clearly linked to Russia's failure to demonstrate complete implementation of its commitments in the Minsk Agreements and respect for Ukraine's sovereignty."

"We fully support the efforts within the Normandy Format and of the Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe for a solution to the conflict in Eastern Ukraine. Should its actions so require, we also stand ready to take further restrictive measures in order to increase costs on Russia," the communique notes.

In addition, the G7 leaders also promised to "maintain our commitment to assisting Ukraine in implementing its ambitious and necessary reform agenda."
